An Affair of The Couch



Hello Mimi Fans!

I am thrilled to be guest posting for a blogger that cracks.me.up.

Mimi has been part of SITS for quite sometime, so we have always been friendly.

But, in a moment of decor bliss, we fell in deep bloggy love.

See, I love decor. I love seeing what people do to make their homes and extension of themselves. If you put up a picture of your adorable child, you can bet I'm sneaking a peek in the background.

Apparently, Mimi does too.

A few weeks ago, I posted this picture in regards to Spring:


Mimi left me this comment: "The plants are cute, but I am considering leaving my husband and marrying you for those couches!!!!"

And, with that I knew Mimi was so my people.

So, I thought I'd share a bit more of my Spring decor!

A great way to get ready for Spring is to paint. I decided our master bedroom was in needed of some new bling. I am a HUGE fan of vinyl lettering and designs, as here in SoCal, we can't put anything over our beds that could fall. I saw this chandelier and fell head over heels. The paint color is "contemplation" and it's the perfect shade of blue/grey with a tiny hint of green.



My bedroom is now incredible relaxing and apparently very wrinkled, but whatev.

Now, on to the family room.


Have you seen Wal Mart's new Better Homes & Garden line? I fell in love with these plaid drapes. And, I am a big fan of the letter R- I have picked those up from various places: Home Goods, Anthropology, etc.
The classic iron piece? Hobby Lobby. Sigh. How I miss Hobby Lobby. 



And, to really be fabulous this Spring. You must have one of these:


A big thank you to Mimi for having me!

I love the bedroom. I love your decor. Your house could be in Southern Living or any other home magazine. Martha Stewart should be eating her heart out!

I am so in love with the chandelier! Can it be ordered online, so we at home can be as fabulous as you??

Brandy said...

Too cute! Can you come on over and re-do my house?

I'll bake cookies.

Mrs. S said...

Seriously, have you been featured in Better Homes and Gardens? Because you should be - or whatever other beautiful home magazines there are.

Seriously, I don't think my mind could imagine a house that fabulous! I always feel like mine is just put together - a step above dorm room-worthy. :S

But I adore the chandelier; that's awesome!

Great decor. I love the R's on the mantel. Adds a great touch.

April Greer said...

Love this post...I could look at pictures of people's homes all day, every day...(and of course as a Realtor I've looked inside of homes all day, every day too). I wonder if Gs on the mantle would have the same touch? The R just looks good, don't you think!

Darn it. I forgot to stuff the dog in my purse to steal on Saturday.

At least you actually made your bed for the picture though right? It's a start.

I thought you were gonna put up "This Is Where The Magic Happens" in vinyl lettering over your bed??
